03_Baghagha Group's story

This group is composed of five women who keep up strong ties and live in the same town. They joined the women’s group when it was set up in June 2002. They are active mainly in the commerce of various goods.

Ms. Nafissatou, at the right in the photo with a hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 25, married, and the mother of two children, including a girl. She has been doing commerce in fish for several years.

With this loan, she envisions having more supplies to sell at the town market. The earnings will help her husband to cover day-to-day expenses, as well as the children’s education and healthcare.
